    Today I was hunting Utah Lake. Had a few geese swing on us, watched them fly away and shook my head. I heard at least 3 groups of hunters calling to them, one group fired some shots at them from 100 yards away. We cleaned up and as we headed in we yelled to them that goose season was closed. They yelled back that "Whatever."

    I wonder how many hunters don't know or don't care that the goose season closes. Some hunters make me MAD!!!

    A lot more people then you would think I am sure. Still not sure the effectiveness of the split season/zone.

    The split goose season is awesome. The state being split in to 2 zones is NOT awesome. Keep the split but make it state wide, problem solved.

    There's nothing wrong with the split, just the morons who can't read the proc or the map. You can always head north to hunt during Oct.

    It pretty much boils down to the same root cause as most of our other problems, no enforcement = continued abuse!

    Not going to happen, the state must schedule our season during the framework dates the Feds give them. If memory serves me, the framework dates end on Jan 31.
